Australian Grand Prix weather forecast

New cars, new rules – there are plenty of unknowns heading into the first race of 2009, but it looks like the weather won’t be one of them.

The Australian Grand Prix is expected to see three days of dry weather. Melbourne will experience temperatures in the low 20s (C) each day according to the Australian Government Bureau of Meterology.

Weather.com and Weather Underground agree with the forecast for a dry weekend with temperatures no more than 24C.

The weather in the state of Victoria has been in the news this year after a series of appalling bush fires claimed hundred of lives. The Australian Red Cross is still accepting donations to support communities affected by the disaster which you can send here: Australian Red Cross.

Thanks to Toby for the tip.

    The weatherman now says that Sunday is going to be a perfect day, sunny 24c.
    I thought it may get fairly dark by the time the race finishes, but have just found out its daylight saving here this weekend, so bring on the racing :)

    A useful guide thanks. I predict I’m going to quickly get bored of BBC intros to the season and that extra hour in bed could make all the difference. This year I’m not going to sleep through the whole race and wake up just in time to see the results.

    I noticed a minor time translation error for Free practice 2. 05:30 – 19:30 should be 05:30 – 07:30. Not of Tag-Heuer Brazil 2003 proportions, but worth mentioning I thought ;)
